Tsinghua University: Two Exemplary Applications in China
 
36:58
Speaker: Jianmin Wang, Professor In this talk, we will share the experiences of applying Cassandra with two real customers in China. In the first use case, we deployed Cassandra at Sany Group, a leading company of Machinery manufacturing, to manage the sensor data generated by construction machinery. By designing a specific schema and optimizing the write process, we successfully managed over 1.5 billion historical data records and achieved the online write throughput of 10k write operations per second with 5 servers. MapReduce is also used on Cassandra for valued-added services, e.g. operations management, machine failure prediction, and abnormal behavior mining. In the second use case, Cassandra is deployed in the China Meteorological Administration to manage the Meteorological data. We design a hybrid schema to support both slice query and time window based query efficiently. Also, we explored the optimized compaction and deletion strategy for meteorological data in this case.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang Inspects Shanxi Province
 
01:51
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang urged efforts to speed up structural reforms and promote industrial upgrading during his two-day inspection tour of Taiyuan city, north China's Shanxi Province, which ended Tuesday. He inspected the Taiyuan Iron and Steel(Group)Co., Ltd, the world's largest stainless steel producer. The Premier said, affected by the excessive production capacity and shrinking demand, the steel industry is confronted with great difficulties. So the enterprise should currently focus on cutting production capacity, promoting upgrading and structural adjustment so as to produce more quality products and increase its productivity. During his inspection of the Guandi Coal Mine of the Xishan Coal Electricity Group Co., Ltd, Li took the tramcar down the shaft hundreds of meters deep. He talked to miners and hailed them as people who bring light to the society. He urged the enterprise to cut its production, make innovation and create new posts for surplus labor as the mining industry currently suffers from serious overcapacity and a sharp decline in coal price. The government should take various measures to create a favorable environment, helping the mining sector out of trouble, said Li. He also visited the Sanhesheng Energy-Efficient Technology Services Company in the Taiyuan branch under the Tsinghua Science Park, which has gathered more than 200 high-tech enterprises. The Premier encouraged innovators to make exploration and use their ideas to create new industries. In his inspection tour of the Xiaobeiguan shanty town in the Xinghualing District, which has been listed in the housing renovation plan this year, the Premier pledged that the government will continue the home-reconstruction progress, letting the residents in shanty towns move to the new housings as early as possible. Li visited the Taiyuan Jinshang Museum, where he encouraged enterprises to abandon conservative thinking and embark on an innovative path.

Electricity sector in China
 
21:09
The People's Republic of China's electric power industry has changed dramatically since the early 1990s to become the world's largest electricity consumer, passing the United States in 2011. In 2014, it generated 5583TWh, 25% more electricity than the US. In April 1996, an Electric Power Law was implemented, a major event in China's electric power industry. The law set out to promote the development of the electric power industry, to protect legal rights of investors, managers and consumers, and to regulate generation, distribution and consumption. Most of the electricity in China is produced from fossil fuels. In particular, about 79% of annual electricity was produced with coal in China between 2004-2010. China has abundant energy. The country has the world's third-largest coal reserves and massive hydroelectric resources. But there is a geographical mismatch between the location of the coal fields in the north-east and north, hydropower in the south-west, and the fast-growing industrial load centers of the east and south.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Henk Potts, equity strategist, Barclays Stockbrokers: "Well we know the markets been under pressure under the course of the last couple of weeks, but what we've been seeing today is massive selling pressure coming through. Right across the European markets. For example the FTSE down more than 4 and a half per cent today. So a big sell off coming through. We're seeing a lot of pressure coming through in the mining sector, in the financial sector, and the retail sector as well. I think investors still remain very nervous that we could be looking not only at a significant economic slow down, but there's that dreaded word recession in investors minds as well. And I think that's what's spooking them as well. And that's why we're seeing this broadway sell off during the course of the session today." ++EXTERIOR 6. Wide exterior of Barclays building New Delhi ++INTERIOR 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gordon Brown, British prime minister: "The global financial turbulence that we are seeing is affecting every continent and I think its important to say that countries like India and Britain are determined to do everything in our power to maintain the stability of our economies and we believe that we've put in place the right measures, keeping inflation and interest rates as low as possible so that we can withstand what is something that has affected all global financial markets in every continent of the world." London ++EXTERIOR 8. Mid of Canary Wharf building 9. Wide of Canary Wharf building with other buildings STORYLINE: UK and Indian stock markets plunged on Monday following declines on Wall Street last week amid investor pessimism over the US President George W. Bush's stimulus plan to prevent a recession. At one point the market was down five per cent on the day. European stocks plummeted in a global market rout on concerns the US might be headed for recession, with analysts saying investors are now faced with the prospect of a bear market and should be braced for more downside. The Dow Jones Stoxx 600 Index plunged 5.7% to 308.83. It now stands about 18% down on the beginning of 2008 and about 30% off its bull market high of 400.99, struck on July 13, 2007. A 20% pullback from a market peak is a common definition of a bear market. In terms of national markets, the UK's FTSE 100 slumped 5.5% to 5578.20, while Germany's DAX Index plunged 7.2% to 6790.19. France's CAC-40 Index fell 6.8% to 4744.15. The drops followed losses in Asian markets and were continued in Canada and Brazil; US markets were closed for the holiday commemorating civil rights leader Martin Luther King. Markets have been facing mounting pressures from signals that the recent credit crisis could send the US the world's biggest economy, into recession. Henk Potts of Barclays Stockbrokers said that "massive" amounts of selling had been taking place. "Well we know the markets been under pressure under the course of the last couple of weeks, but what we've been seeing today is massive selling pressure coming through," Potts to AP Television. "I think investors still remain very nervous that we could be looking not only at a significant economic slow down, but there's that dreaded word recession in investors minds as well. And I think that's what's spooking them as well. And that's why we're seeing this broadway sell off during the course of the session today," he added. Asian markets were also hit hard.

In this week's episode of "Zooming In," we discussed who built China's Great Firewall and how American Tech companies, such as CISCO, helped the Chinese communist regime with the Internet blockage and surveillance technology.

$35 Million: Sequoia, Baidu Back Turing Award Winner’s Blockchain Project
 
04:29
$35 Million: Sequoia, Baidu Back Turing Award Winner’s Blockchain Project A group of university professors and researchers including a Turing award winner have raised $35 million for a non-profit foundation that will support the development of a new blockchain network. Announced Tuesday, the Conflux Foundation is registered in Singapore and will use the proceeds to fuel work on its network. Backers include venture capital firms Sequoia China and Baidu Ventures, crypto mining firm F2Pool and exchange Huobi, as well as Metastable and IMO Ventures. With the new capital, the foundation said it’s now looking to expand its 10-person development team. The goal: roll out a testing environment in February and officially launch a new public blockchain around the third quarter of next year. The project was co-founded by scholars from the University of Toronto and China’s Tsinghua University, including Dr. Andrew Chi-Chih Yao, a Turing Award winner and an information sciences professor at Tsinghua. Named for renowned mathematician Alan Turing, the Turing award is given out yearly by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and is considered a kind of Nobel prize for computer science. According to an academic paper published in May, the group conducted a month-long experiment for the Conflux prototype late last year. Their efforts utilized the code of the bitcoin blockchain but changed the protocol from the Nakamoto consensus model, named for bitcoin’s creator, to Conflux’s own design. “We implemented a prototype of Conflux and evaluated Conflux by deploying up to 20k Conflux full nodes on 800 Amazon EC2 virtual machines,” the paper stated. “The throughput is equivalent to 6,400 transactions per second for typical bitcoin transactions.” Scalability push In an interview with CoinDesk, Dr. Fan Long, a co-founder of the project and an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Toronto, said the key design decision that he believes could help to scale public blockchains is to change the way blocks are ordered. Currently, most blockchains work in a rather linear way in that only one block can be produced at a time and added to the end of a chain. In the event of two blocks being created at the same time, the network relies on nodes to agree on which one will continue the chain. Long said this feature of blockchain results in a bottleneck that is problematic for most public networks, especially those like ethereum that aim to power smart contracts and decentralized applications. “Some may have a higher scalability, but to some extent at the expense of a complete decentralization,” Long said. The Conflux protocol, however, is designed to allow blocks to be produced concurrently to boost the volume of transactions. But to avoid forks, or the emergence of two competing versions of the ledger, Long said the group designed an ordering algorithm based on the concept of a directed acyclic graph (DAG) that is able to make sure every block will be eventually arranged in a sequence by the network. Looking ahead According to Long, while the foundation utilized most of the original bitcoin blockchain code during its lab experiment, it will develop its own infrastructure for the public launch next year as the team hopes to include smart contract features. Further, the foundation said its investors, such as Baidu, will commit to using the network for future development. Long went on to say that the end goal is to create a scalable public blockchain with smart contracts that can deliver decentralized applications – and he made a sly dig at ethereum, whose scaling challenges were laid bare a year ago when CryptoKitties clogged that public blockchain network. “That goal sounds easy and similar to what every other project is saying. But it’s actually really difficult,” Long said, concluding: “Because what we need is a highly productive public network for high-value applications, not just several blockchain-based games.” #BTCCryptocurrencyNews #BitcoinNews #BlockchainNews ► THANKS FOR WATCHING & don't forget LIKE, SHARE, COMMENT and SUBSCRIBE our Channel. ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/RiUxhK ► Like My Page on Facebook:
Is Skycoin Going to the Moon?!?! 11 Things You NEED to Know
 
11:07
Skycoin is bringing the decentralized internet to the blockchain with their Skywire, Obelisk, & Skyminer technology. Here's 11 things you need to know about SKY coin. Skycoin is a blockchain-based project that, aside from cryptocurrency, tackles the development of energy-efficient custom hardware, the elimination of mining rewards, achieving transaction speeds that can hold their own with the likes of Visa, & the development of a “new Internet” that features improvements in terms of privacy & security. The same centralization tendency can also be historically observed with Internet Service Providers. ISPs can also exploit customers further by selling their information to interested 3rd parties. The Skycoin team aims to return to the initial ideals of decentralization put forward by Satoshi Nakamoto while also building a truly decentralized mesh-Internet that puts control into the hands of the users; freeing them from their dependence on ISPs. Skycoin doesn’t rely on Proof-of-Work or Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithms. Its developers use a new distributed consensus algorithm called Obelisk, which they describe as a “Web-of-Trust.” As the central component of Skycoin’s ecosystem, Obelisk improves security & greatly increases transaction speeds. The web-of-trust means that influence is distributed over the network. Since there’s no mining involved, the web is instead made up of nodes; each of them subscribing to a list of trusted nodes and, as such, those with more subscribers have more influence in the network. Every node is given a personal blockchain that essentially represents a transparent “public broadcasting channel,” where each action is recorded & visible. There are no fixed ports, & nodes are addressed by their public cryptographic keys with their IP addresses known only by the nodes they connect with directly. Communication & consensus decisions taking place on a node’s personal blockchain can easily be audited by the community without sacrificing privacy. Block-Making nodes send their input to Consensus Nodes, & even though their algorithms are separate from one another, both node types operate on the same data structures. Both Block-Making Nodes as well as Consensus Nodes perform fraud detection & authorship verification on incoming data. There are no fees for Skycoin transactions. Instead, transactions cost Coin Hours. An exchange is in the works for converting & establishing exchange rates between Coin Hours & Skycoin. Coin Hours somewhat resemble gas in Ethereum; the key difference being that they operate as a parallel currency in the Skycoin ecosystem & are tradeable on exchanges. It aims to create a decentralized mesh network that’s cheaper, faster, more accessible, & that provides a higher quality service. Skywire has been in development for over 4 years, & the project has already taken its first steps towards developing 4 major aspects critical to building a new Internet. These are the communication protocol, the payment protocol, a hardware platform, & an application ecosystem. Skywire moves away from TCP/IP & employs Multi-Protocol Label Switching (or MPLS) techniques to ensure the high-performance & highly-scalable movement of any data across any environment. MPLS means that movement through the network is established before traffic is sent out. MPLS is less computationally-demanding & more secure than the current model. Nodes on the packet’s route will only see its previous & next hop, & not its content, source, or destination. MPLS is also economically stimulating. Source nodes using Skywire will have complete control over routing protocol & will naturally opt to send traffic over routes with low latency, cost, & hop-count. Every participating node within the Skywire ecosystem can benefit from its embedded payment protocol. Nodes basically act as micro-ISPs capable of automatic metering, billing, & settlement, & they earn SKY coins for powering the network. Tthe Skywire mesh network pays users for supporting it. Skywire’s computing power, storage capacity, & networking capabilities are provided by custom-built hardware VPN units called Skyminers. Fiber is presented by the team as the “infinitely-scalable & highly customizable parallel peer-chain architecture of the Skycoin platform.” It enables 3rd parties to develop secure, scalable decentralized apps. The Skycoin team has also created a new deterministic programming language called CX that builds more than just smart contracts. Synth is one of Bitcoin’s earliest developers & he started working on Skycoin around 8 years ago; fueled by the idea of building a decentralized Internet. He has a background in symbolic logic, distributed systems, & mathematics. Disclaimer: This is not financial advice.

Google Tech Talks April 16, 2007 ABSTRACT There are many common misconceptions about nuclear power that can be proven to be false, even among people with a variety of opinions. For example, it is often stated that nuclear power plants are very large and cost at least a couple of billion dollars. However, ever since there have been nuclear power plants, there have been some that have been small enough to fit inside submarines. One of those submarines is only 12 feet in diameter and could fit on half of a football field. It has also been said that nuclear power plants must operate at a nearly constant power level, yet they can power both submarines and aircraft carriers through extreme maneuvers....

The city, located in northern China, is governed as a municipality under the direct administration of central government with 16 urban, suburban, and rural districts. Beijing Municipality is surrounded by Hebei Province with the exception of neighboring Tianjin Municipality to the southeast; together the three divisions form the Jingjinji metropolitan region and the national capital region of China.Beijing is an important world capital and global power city, and one of the world's leading centers for politics, economy and business, finance, education, culture, innovation and technology, architecture, language, and diplomacy. A megacity, Beijing is the second largest Chinese city by urban population after Shanghai and is the nation's political, cultural, and educational center. It is home to the headquarters of most of China's largest state-owned companies and houses the largest number of Fortune Global 500 companies in the world, as well as the world's four biggest financial institutions. It is also a major hub for the national highway, expressway, railway, and high-speed rail networks. The Beijing Capital International Airport has been the second busiest in the world by passenger traffic since 2010, and, as of 2016, the city's subway network is the busiest and second longest in the world. Combining both modern and traditional architecture, Beijing is one of the oldest cities in the world, with a rich history dating back three millennia. As the last of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, Beijing has been the political center of the country for most of the past eight centuries, and was the largest city in the world by population for much of the second millennium A.D. Encyclopædia Britannica notes that "few cities in the world have served for so long as the political headquarters and cultural center of an area as immense as China." With mountains surrounding the inland city on three sides, in addition to the old inner and outer city walls, Beijing was strategically poised and developed to be the residence of the emperor and thus was the perfect location for the imperial capital. The city is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, parks, gardens, tombs, walls and gates. It has seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, Ming Tombs, Zhoukoudian, and parts of the Great Wall and the Grand Canal – all popular locatio ...

Most of the electricity in China comes from coal, which accounted for 66% of the electricity generation mix in 2016. Coal-fired electricity production declined from 2013 to 2016 coinciding with a major boom in renewable energy, and a decline in GDP growth. China's coal powered generating capacity is expected to increase to 1300 GW by 2020, from 960 GW in 2016, despite official plans to limit that growth to 1100 GW.China has two wide area synchronous grids, the State Grid and the China Southern Power Grid. The northern power grids were synchronized in 2005. Since 2011 all Chinese provinces are interconnected. The two grids are joined by HVDC back-to-back connections.China has abundant energy with the world's third-largest coal reserves and massive hydroelectric resources. There is however a geographical mismatch between the location of the coal fields in the north-east (Heilongjiang, Jilin, and Liaoning) and north (Shanxi, Shaanxi, and Henan), hydropower in the south-west (Sichuan, Yunnan, and Tibet), and the fast-growing industrial load centers of the east (Shanghai-Zhejiang) and south (Guangdong, Fujian).

They were motivated by proto-nationalist sentiments and by opposition to Western colonialism and the Christian missionary activity that was associated with it. It was initiated by the Militia United in Righteousness (Yihetuan), known in English as the Boxers, for many of their members had been practitioners of Chinese martial arts, also referred to in the west as Chinese Boxing. The uprising took place against a background that included severe drought and disruption caused by the growth of foreign spheres of influence. After several months of growing violence in Shandong and the North China plain against the foreign and Christian presence in June 1900, Boxer fighters, convinced they were invulnerable to foreign weapons, converged on Beijing with the slogan Support the Qing government and exterminate the foreigners. Foreigners and Chinese Christians sought refuge in the Legation Quarter. In response to reports of an armed invasion by allied American, Austro-Hungarian, British, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Russian forces to lift the siege, the initially hesitant Empress Dowager Cixi supported the Boxers and on June 21 issued an Imperial Decree declaring war on the foreign powers. Diplomats, foreign civilians, and soldiers as well as Chinese Christians in the Legation Quarter were detained for 55 days by the Imperial Army of China and the Boxers. Chinese officialdom was split between those supporting the Boxers and those favoring conciliation, led by Prince Qing. The supreme commander of the Chinese forces, the Manchu General Ronglu (Junglu), later claimed he acted to protect the besieged foreigners. Many officials refused the imperial order to fight against foreigners in their Mutual Protection of Southeast China, because Qing had lost the First Sino-Japanese War five years before. The Eight-Nation Alliance, after being initially turned back, brought 20,000 armed troops to China, defeated the Imperial Army, and arrived at Peking on August 14, relieving the siege of the Legations. Uncontrolled plunder of the capital and the surrounding countryside ensued, along with the summary execution of those suspected of being Boxers. The Boxer Protocol of 7 September 1901 provided for the execution of government officials who had supported the Boxers, provisions for foreign troops to be stationed in Beijing, and 450 million taels of silver—approximately $10 billion at 2018 silver prices and more than the government's annual tax revenue—to be paid as indemnity over the course of the next thirty-nine years to the eight nations involved. The Empress Dowager then sponsored a set of institutional and fiscal changes in a failed attempt to save the dynasty.

Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The founders initially limited the website's membership to Harvard students. Later they expanded it to higher education institutions in the Boston area, the Ivy League schools, and Stanford University. Facebook gradually added support for students at various other universities, and eventually to high school students. Since 2006, anyone who claims to be at least 13 years old has been allowed to become a registered user of Facebook, though variations exist in this requirement, depending on local laws. The name comes from the face book directories often given to American university students. Facebook held its initial public offering (IPO) in February 2012, valuing the company at $104 billion, the largest valuation to date for a newly listed public company. It began selling stock to the public three months later. Facebook makes most of its revenue from advertisements that appear onscreen. Facebook can be accessed from a large range of devices with Internet connectivity, such as desktop computers, laptops and tablet computers, and smartphones. After registering, users can create a customized profile indicating their name, occupation, schools attended and so on. Users can add other users as "friends", exchange messages, post status updates, share photos, videos and links, use various software applications ("apps"), and receive notifications of other users' activity. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups organized by workplace, school, hobbies or other topics, and categorize their friends into lists such as "People From Work" or "Close Friends". Additionally, users can report or block unpleasant people. Facebook has more than 2.2 billion monthly active users as of January 2018. Its popularity has led to prominent media coverage for the company, including significant scrutiny over privacy and the psychological effects it has on users. In recent years, the company has faced intense pressure over the amount of fake news, hate speech and depictions of violence prevalent on its services, all of which it is attempting to counteract.

His theories, military strategies, and political policies are collectively known as Maoism. Mao was the son of a wealthy farmer in Shaoshan, Hunan. He had a Chinese nationalist and anti-imperialist outlook early in his life, and was particularly influenced by the events of the Xinhai Revolution of 1911 and May Fourth Movement of 1919. He later adopted Marxism–Leninism while working at Peking University, and became a founding member of the Communist Party of China (CPC), leading the Autumn Harvest Uprising in 1927. During the Chinese Civil War between the Kuomintang (KMT) and the CPC, Mao helped to found the Chinese Workers' and Peasants' Red Army, led the Jiangxi Soviet's radical land policies, and ultimately became head of the CPC during the Long March. Although the CPC temporarily allied with the KMT under the United Front during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945), China's civil war resumed after Japan's surrender and in 1949 Mao's forces defeated the Nationalist government, which withdrew to Taiwan. On October 1, 1949, Mao proclaimed the foundation of the People's Republic of China (PRC), a single-party state controlled by the CPC. In the following years he solidified his control through land reforms and through a psychological victory in the Korean War, as well as through campaigns against landlords, people he termed "counter-revolutionaries", and other perceived enemies of the state. In 1957 he launched a campaign known as the Great Leap Forward that aimed to rapidly transform China's economy from agrarian to industrial. This campaign led to the deadliest famine in history and the deaths of an estimated minimum of 45 million people between 1958 and 1962. In 1966, Mao initiated the Cultural Revolution, a program to remove "counter-revolutionary" elements in Chinese society which lasted 10 years and was marked by violent class struggle, widespread destruction of cultural artifacts, and an unprecedented elevation of Mao's cult of personality. The program is now officially regarded as a "severe setback" for the PRC. In 1972, Mao welcomed American President Richard Nixon in Beijing, signalling the start of a policy of opening China to the world. After years of ill health, Mao suffered a series of heart attacks in 1976 and died at the age of 82. He was succeeded as paramount leader by Premier Hua Guofeng, who was quickly sidelined and replaced by Deng Xiaoping. A controversial figure, Mao is regarded as one of the most important and influential individuals in modern world history. He is also known as a political intellect, theorist, military strategist, poet, and visionary. Supporters credit him with driving imperialism out of China, modernising the nation and building it into a world power, promoting the status of women, improving education and health care, as well as increasing life expectancy as China's population grew from around 550 million to over 900 million under his leadership. Conversely, his regime has been called autocratic and totalitarian, and condemned for bringing about mass repression and destroying religious and cultural artifacts and sites. It was additionally responsible for vast numbers of deaths with estimates ranging from 30 to 70 million victims.

It is the flagship institution of the Texas A&M University System, the fourth-largest university in the United States and the largest university in Texas. Texas A&M's designation as a land, sea, and space grant institution reflects a range of research with ongoing projects funded by agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Naval Research. The school ranks in the top 20 American research institutes in funding and has made contributions to such fields as animal cloning and petroleum engineering. The first public institution of higher education in Texas, though not the first general university in the state, the school opened on October 4, 1876 as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas under the provisions of the Morrill Land-Grant Acts. Originally, the college taught no classes in agriculture, instead concentrating on classical studies, languages, literature, and applied mathematics. After four years, students could attain degrees in scientific agriculture, civil and mining engineering, and language and literature. Under the leadership of President James Earl Rudder, in the 1960s A&M desegregated, became coeducational, and dropped the requirement for participation in the Corps of Cadets. To reflect the institution's expanded roles and academic offerings, the Texas Legislature renamed the school to Texas A&M University in 1963. The letters "A&M", originally short for "Agricultural and Mechanical", are retained only as a link to the university's past. The school's students, alumni, and sports teams are known as "Aggies".

Carlos Ghosn, KBE is a French-Lebanese-Brazilian businessman born in Porto Velho, Brazil, who is currently the Chairman and CEO of Paris-based Renault, Chairman and CEO of Japan-based Nissan, and Chairman of Russian automobile manufacturer AvtoVAZ. Ghosn is also Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the strategic partnership overseeing Nissan and Renault through a unique cross-shareholding agreement. The Alliance, which includes AvtoVAZ, has held approximately 10% of the global market share from 2010 through to 2014, and as of 2014 is one of the top four automobile groups worldwide. After his radical restructuring of Renault that returned that company to profitability in the late 1990s Ghosn became known as "Le Cost Killer". In the early 2000s, for orchestrating one of the auto industry's most aggressive downsizing campaigns and spearheading the turnaround of Nissan from its near bankruptcy in 1999, he earned the nickname "Mr. Fix It".

Most of the electricity in China comes from coal, which accounted for 66% of the electricity generation mix in 2016. Coal-fired electricity production declined from 2013 to 2016 coinciding with a major boom in renewable energy, and a decline in GDP growth. China's coal powered generating capacity is expected to increase to 1300 GW by 2020, from 960 GW in 2016, despite official plans to limit that growth to 1100 GW.China has two wide area synchronous grids, the State Grid and the China Southern Power Grid. The northern power grids were synchronized in 2005. Since 2011 all Chinese provinces are interconnected. The two grids are joined by HVDC back-to-back connections.China has abundant energy with the world's third-largest coal reserves and massive hydroelectric resources. There is however a geographical mismatch between the location of the coal fields in the north-east (Heilongjiang, Jilin, and Liaoning) and north (Shanxi, Shaanxi, and Henan), hydropower in the south-west (Sichuan, Yunnan, and Tibet), and the fast-growing industrial load centers of the east (Shanghai-Zhejiang) and south (Guangdong, Fujian).
